Fill'er up!

I LOVE making my bags for my Etsy shop,
it is really a great creative outlet, 
for designing and sewing! 
It makes me feel good each time 
I make a new one for a customer :)

One of my awesome customers 
sent me some pics of her "Yoko" bag in use...

She is using it in her diaper bag :)
That is one prepared Mama, I love it!
She's got everything in there!

Initially I had started these for use as makeup bags
and now this opens up a whole different range of use!!
A great place to put all those little loose items 
from your diaper bag
all in one place for you to easily find!!

Thanks for sharing Andrea :)
Hop on over and check out her website!!

"Simply Elegant"
She creates, 
"jewelry and accessories that are simply delicate, whimsical, and beautiful."

She has some truely great pieces in her shop

My Secret Obsession...


My husband makes fun of me because
 I have a cookie jar obsession,
well I admit it, I do!
LOVE cookie jars!!

Now it would only be considered an addiction
 if I actually bought every cookie jar, right?!
But I don't because I have been waiting for the PERFECT one!




Isn't he a cutie?

When I first saw this on the show
Modern Family
I jumped off the couch,
grabbed the remote,
and pressed rewind on the dvr, 
{to show the hubs, who could probably care less, but humors me ;}
all while yelling, 
"oh my gosh, oh my gosh!"
My hubs thought something crazy had happened that he missed, 
{while sitting right there watching}
No, just me acting like a crazy person
who found the cookie jar of her 
childhood dreams!!

There is something about this cookie jar 
that gives me that warm fuzzy feeling and
I want to make up a fantastic story about...
how it was passed down from my great-great grandma
who made cookies every Sunday
for her kids and grandkids 
and I am now the lucky girl who gets to have it for my kids!

I have only kept it 
a secret
because I don't want everyone 
thinking I collect cookie jars!

For some reason when you tell someone you like something,
you seem to only get that sort of item
anytime you receive gifts!
And that is usually really great!!
But when it comes to cookie jars,
I have to be clear,
I only like THIS ONE cookie jar!!
{and my birthday is only 4 months away ;}
This will be mine,
oh yes,
it will be mine ;}
